zappaisfrank: Roll...roll...roll in ze hay.../totally would have back then..
GRCooper: To be a parody of Frankenstein's assistant, it doesn't have to be a parody of a single instance.In fact, it helps if it isn't.tl;dr - it's all of them
ristst: The Ghost of Frankenstein - 1942Bela Lugosi - Ygor, and I believe he was hunchbacked, or at least he's all bent and twisted...didn't the townsfolk attempt to hang him earlier?

Stratohead: pretty certain the use of the Peter Lorre voice for Igor came from an old LooneyToons short...I want to say directed by Bob Clampett...but I don't have the time to look it up just now.
